Aftermath é uma obra prima. Principalmente na primeira fase da banda. Mas tb em td sua discografia, é um dos melhores. Escutando-o, percebo o qnt o mesmo marcou uma parte da minha vida. Aftermath is a masterpiece. Mainly in early Stones career. One of his best albums. It changed my life for some years, it's very special for me.
Those bitches are millionaires thanks to Brian. They fucked up his life, stole his legacy, kicked him out of his own band, killed him and now enjoy their pathetic lives, but not for long... Karma's coming for all of them, karma is a bigger bitch than jagger.
Brian had no hand on Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile, Tattoo You..a run of singles in the 70s... The Glimmer Twins and Bill and Charlie, Ian Stewart, and Mick T and Ron Wood deserve credit for their masterpieces too
yes it is easy, it is so very easy to say "he wasted his talent at the age of 27, he fucked up his own life". you don't want to open your eyes and see what happened, what REALLY happened. no, i was not there, but there are things evident - from day 1 the ultimate goal was to push Brian back and become the leaders themselves. Not only they reached their goal, but they never gave Brian his deserved credits. Mick stole his band, Keith stole his girlfriend, they did every fucking thing to make him weaker to the point that the man was devastated, what else was he supposed to do? everything went down, they were shit to him they kicked him out, there were only drugs and alcohol left with him. But he overcame that and was about to start a new life when that dreadful pool incident happened. Mick's and Keith's mission was complete. Things turned out better than they expected.
"There was nothing the matter with him that a little extra love wouldn't have cured. I don't think he had enough love or understanding" - George Harrison. It both gives me joy and pains my eyes to see that a Beatle was better, treated him better than his own bandmates. They are so poisoned that even after 40 years of Brian's death they won't open their mouths to say something sweet about him. as if he was a monster. and you know what? George is right. Nothing the matter with him that a little extra love wouldn't have cured. *drops the mic*
Brian Jones is part victim but also part the cause of his own downfall. Your obsessive way of seeing him as only a victim of others, while not admitting him being responsible for any part of it whatsoever is quite pathetic. Almost all human beings experience a lack of love and understanding somewhere in their life. Most of them don't drown in a pool, while being high on drugs. You say Mick and Keith don't show appericiation, I watched that documentary 'Crossfire Hurricane' where both take time out to laud Brian's musical talents. I remember Mick praising his awesome slide guitar on 'No Expectations'. Still you can't blame them for concluding at the very end that working together with him in a band was impossible due to Brian's own personal problems. They weren't responsible for all those problems, they could have acted differently but I can understand them being pissed at their former bandleader becoming a completely unreliable band member.
The Beggar's Banquet should be in the Wind River Mountains at Blue Lake. You can park your cycles safely at the head of the trail and hike in. Trout are easy to catch with an Indian Joe Spinner, they die with one knock on the head, cut them open and put 'em on a stick over a fire. Wood for campfire is easy to find and I've never had better fish. Requires a lemon and otherwise no cost.
It depends on my mood, I might say Exile or Sticky Fingers...but Beggars Banquet and Let it Bleed are mostly Keef...but disc one of Hot Rocks is one of the greatest things ever...Ruby Tuesday. Brian Jones was amazing! I love Tattoo You too...
